Harlem Yu tacitly admits to divorce from Annie Yi
Tight-lipped over his wife’s extra-marital affairs for several months, popular Taiwanese variety host Harlem Yu revealed in an interview with Sandra Ng in Hong Kong that his marriage with Annie Yi is over.

“I’ll inform everyone when things have reached a certain phase. Everything is still processing, I’ll let everyone know when there is a definite answer. This issue will then be all over.”

“There is no timeframe given to such an issue. I’ll let everyone know when I’m ready. I’ve been asked many times if there are any regrets; I can say safely that there are none. I just want to finish what I have to do,” he added.

Yu also said he is currently not looking for a girlfriend; the focal point in his life now will be his son and work.

On the other hand, Yi, who just celebrated her 40th birthday, updated her blog with a post titled “Journey by myself”, expressing that she is well and has been leading a fulfilling life. While thanking her family and friends, she avoided mentioning Yu; besides words of gratitude, she also posted four self-portraits of herself taken with smiles on her face, expressing her recovery from the affair and announcing her singlehood again.
